    Pocket Full of Swing where a truly great band. They were very organised and professional throughout the whole process. Their music was perfect for what we wanted with many guests commenting on how much they enjoyed the band. I didn’t give them much direction in terms of timing so it was fantastic that they matched the atmosphere perfectly and really enhanced the experience for everyone involved. If I was to organise an event like this again I would definitely use Bands for Hire and Pocket Full of Swing again.

    Fiona Jakins - Private Party
    We absolutely loved the pocket full of swing trio! We give them 10/10! They were talented, cool, pleasant, laid back, accommodating and everyone said they’d love to hire them for an event. Your website is great and I was able to access their sound before choosing. They were open to all we needed. They also made their requirements known early in and were both straightforward and professional. I really appreciated that. We asked them to play a bit more and they seemed happy to do it. We had a fabulous party and the musicians were a big part of making it so special.

    Eleanor Anderton - Wedding
    We hired Pocket Full of Swing for our daughter’s Wedding. I cannot praise them enough. They were all lovely friendly people; their time keeping was spot on; but to me it was their music that needs talking about. They played a brilliant selection, the vocalist was great. A really talented group of musicians. I cannot recommend them highly enough.
